Its been awhile since I posted, all summer has gone by without one post from me updating the garden. The reason for that, is I was not able to post photos all that time, I was posting photos in their raw form, (opps :)) and kinda got locked out of the account for a bit. I think I have it all figured out now, just in time to post a picture of the frost from this morning, and few others from this week that I like.
Here is a shot of the Ghost peppers, aka Bhut Jolokia I grew this summer, finally got them to flower, and produce fruit. I think mother nature giving us over 71 days of 90+ degree really did the trick this year! My family was brave and tried them, brought 4 men to tears and made them drool in pain :).
Now that I have the photo problem figured out, hopefully, I will be updating with more photos from the summer and with plans for winter work to make the garden easier for next year. Thanks for stopping by, sorry for the long delay in posting, I'll get caught up!

There are many things I need to get done in the yard this summer, one is a shed for sure, and greenhouse. The greenhouse may be put on the back burner for awhile, but the shed is a must. I have to many yard tools taking over the garage. My Dad is helping me figure and put in a water and drip system, which is amazing. It is such a nice relief to not have to hand water everything every morning, I've been doing that for three years, now all of a sudden with a watering system in I feel completely spoiled, and I have to admit, I love it!
I planted 3 new rose bushes, so now I have total of 9 in the back and the one in the front yard. This photo is of last years roses blooming like crazy with this early spring we had. They are so pretty, I have pink, red, yellow, orange, white, and lavender roses growing back there. More to come on the new bushes soon!

Things go frosty last week, here's a few photos of that chilly morning!
These are the peas that are coming up outside, they are super happy! Its my first time growing an early spring garden, but I have many things coming up out there, radish, romaine lettuce, spinach, peas, and onion! Yay for a beautiful growing spring!
The above photo is horseradish that made after digging it up in my yard last weekend. I have attempted to move the horseradish twice now and it keeps coming back, which I love, but its taking over the asparagus, so I had to dig again to try to get it all. Well, after digging a 14" deep hole, its clear to me that the horseradish is like a weed, and it will take me a very long time to get rid of it all. I moved the bigger plant to another spot in the garden, and that one will now be there forever, never again will I try to move it, and if you are thinking of planting it, make sure you put it where you want it on the first planting! Not so fun during the 3 hour dig process, but totally worth it to have fresh homemade horseradish, beautiful I tell ya!
